Pros: It is the mark where spending more gets you less and less.
Cons: An i5 should not cost as much as this thing does. It does not even come with a heat sink! If you plan on OC one day, then having a heat sink would be nice.
Other Thoughts: If you have a 2500k or newer i5, I'd say skip this one. Hope for a 6 core i5 for this price. We need AMD!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z170 Pro4 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: For the price, not bad at all.
The layout is better than most.
You can OC the CPU w/o too much fuss.
It is just a good all around MoBo.
Cons: It locks up. I have tested all of the parts on my rig so I am very sure the BIOS the mobo ships with has issues. I will try to update it again. The driver CD gave the option but it failed and the BIOS would not do it via internet flash. So I will try to do it via thumb drive soon.
It was not very fun trying to get windows 7 working. I had to load windows 10 and then get W7. I don't hate W10 but 7 is still more stable for me when it comes to gaming.
Other Thoughts: This is not a bad pick. I hope they ship these with a better BIOS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It did ok. Cost plus games put it over the edge vs the 970. You could OC the thing and it look good.
Cons: After about month I started to get odd drops where my monitors would go dark but the computer would be on. I would reset the computer and the card would spin up very fast then nothing. I would reset the computer then it would work. It would do this after about 4 hours of use from time to time. I kept reading and working on the settings and setting the fan to run faster helped some.
But last night, it just went down. I used the mobo display port to trouble shoot. I redid all the drivers and worked on it all night. I changed pci slots ...you name it. My computer does not see the card anymore.
The last thing this card did before it death was shut down and the fans spun up to 100%. Then nothing.
Other Thoughts: I am supper bummed. I got rid of a great 280x for this card. It is advertised as certified to be stable.READ FULL REVIEW
